Chapter 26: Lost Love

I caught up to Joseph before he left to look for Nicky. I offered to help. He was surprised but grateful, and we boarded the boat to Nigeria.

...

Lagos was bustling. So many people. So much activity. It wass overwhelming.

June: How are we ever going to find Nicky?

Father Osondu: Joseph, praise God, you got my telegram.

Joseph: Yes, we came straight away. This is June. She's an old friend of Nicky's. Tell us what happened.

Father Osondu: Of course. I just need to take a few things to the church.

Clue #1

June: It looks like you dropped these.

Father Osondu: Oh, thank you. I'm always dropping things. Not getting any younger.

Joseph: How long has Nicky been missing?

Father Osondu: Since last Friday. He promised to help me out at the church on his day off. But he didn't show up. He wasn't at home either.

June: He's been missing since Friday. Have the police been informed?

Father Osondu: Yes, but they assured me there was nothing to worry about. No sign of foul play.

Joseph: It doesn't make any sense. Nicky wouldn't abandon his patients.

June: I know. It doesn't add up. Should we check your house first?

Joseph: Yes, let's hail a cab.

Clue #2

June: The taxi's here. Thank you, Father Osondu. You've been very helpful.

Father Osondu: I pray you'll find Nicky soon. I don't know what we'd do without his work at the clinic. It pains me deeply to think he might be in danger.

...

Joseph: We should start in Nicky's study. I generally avoid this place. It's Nicky's inner sanctum, but I don't know how he works in all this mess.

June: Good to see he's still the same old Nicky. Living in his office, under a pile of papers.

June: Wait, is this...?

Clue #3

June: My wedding ring. I can't believe he kept it.

Joseph: He told me you threw it at him.

June: Did he tell you what I said?

Joseph: Only that he deserved every word.

June: Father Osondu said Nicky had the day off when he disappeared. where could he have gone?

Joseph: He doesn't go many places besides the clinic. Sometimes the church, the cinema.

June: Come on, icky. You must have left something for us.

Clue #4

June: It looks like Nicky went into the clinic after all. Maybe he got an emergency call.

Joseph: He should have been on call on his day off.

June: Well, he's not one to say no. I guess we need to go the clinic and ask some questions.

...

The clinic was overflowing with patients. Doctors and nurses rushed through the halls.

Joseph: It's always been understaffed and overcrowded here. That's why Nicky took the job.

Father Osondu: Joseph, have you learned anything about Nicky?

Joseph: No, not yet, What are you doing here, Father? Everything's all right, I hope.

Father Osondu: Yes, fine. I'm just here to fill my prescription. But I can't seem to catch a doctor.

Joseph: I can help you with that. June, can you grab that bottle?

Clue #5

June: Veronal tablets.

Father Osondu: Yes, for my nerves. Thank you.

Joseph: Did Nicky say anything to you about going into the clinic on Friday?

Father Osondu: No, and I didn't see him that afternoon when I came in to visit one of my parishioners.

June: Okay, Father. Thank you again.

Joseph: The clinic has a roster of who's on staff and when. I think we should check to see when Nicky signed in.

Clue #6

June: Look, a note from Nicky. "Medicine held up at customs. Gone to get it. Back around 3:00." But he never signed back in.

Joseph: We should go to the customs house and find out if Nicky made it there.

...

Customs Agent: Slow down. If you want to talk to someone, take a number and wait like everyone else.

June: But it's urgent.

Customs Agent: It's always urgent. Take a number.

Clue #7

June: Number 53? This is going to take forever. You don't understand. A man has gone missing. A doctor. He came here to pick up some medicine right before he disappeared.

Customs Agent: Fine. I'll look through our records. What's the name?

June: Dr. Nicholas Bennett. He would have been here last Friday.

Customs Agent: Bennett, you said?

June: Yes, any luck with your records?

Customs Agent: Yeah, I have a receipt for his pick-up right here.

Clue #8

June: So Nicky was here. He signed out the medicine.

Customs Agent: I remember him. Most people who come in here are in a bad mood. But he was friendly. He asked me about my day. He said he needed to make a house call after.

Joseph: Nicky makes house calls along the Ogun riverside. I can take us there.

...

Joseph and I retraced Nicky's house call route. As we reached the outskirts of the city, we came upon an abandoned truck.

Clue #9

June: Is this Nicky's truck?

Joseph: Yes. It looks like he just left it here. The door's wide open. The key's in the ignition.

June: What happened? Why would he just leave it here?

Joseph: I don't know. There's no sign of a struggle, but anything could have happened.

June: We need to find out where Nicky went. Are there any footprints?

Clue #10

June: Wait, these are Veronal tablets.

Joseph: That's Father Osondu's medication.

June: If Father Osondu was here, why didn't he tell us?

Joseph: Maybe it's a coincidence, but we should talk to him just in case.

Joseph: He's probably at the chapel. Let's go.
